Welcome to Year 5
We are looking forward to an amazing year in Year 5!
Topic – We have really enjoyed the start of our ‘Ancient Greece’ topic this half term – we already know so much about how the Ancient Greeks were responsible for how some of our Society works today! We have studied one of the most worshipped temples in the world, The Parthenon, and made our very own fact file about this special building.
Guided Reading – This half term we have delved into the book ‘A Place Called Perfect’. The children have enjoyed reading this book and making their own predictions about the characters met so far. They have some fantastic ideas about the strange things happening in this town and how their local drink of ‘Tea’ could be seriously damaging the people!
Science – This half term we have enjoyed looking at ‘Light’ and how it works. We have looked at how shadows are formed and have even carried out our own experiments to see whether the distance between the source of light and the object effects the size of the shadow!
